Mukombwe settles at FCP


HARARE - Talented right-back Jameson Mukombwe has expressed his excitement with the progress he is making since joining reigning Castle Lager Premiership champions FC Platinum at the start of the season.

Mukombwe, who is on one-year loan from Black Rhinos, is beginning to catch the eye with impressive performances for the reigning champions, who are yet to register a defeat in the opening six matches of the season.

Having been overlooked in the team’s opening four matches of the season; Mukombwe was finally given the nod in FC Platinum’s last two matches against Chapungu and Harare City in which he put in some good performances.

To his credit, Mukombwe, one of the most enterprising right backs in the country, has not disappointed provided two assists in both games.

“Now, I’m getting better and better and the understanding with all of the players is getting much better. I’m just playing my game and trying to help my team,” Mukombwe told the Daily News.

“I think what’s important for me is to keep on working hard because there is a lot of competition in the team which I feel is healthy for the club. I’m looking forward to keep on improving on my game and I think I’m at the right place to achieve just that.”

FC Platinum interim coach Lizwe Sweswe is also impressed with former Black Rhinos defender’s progress and predicted a bright future for him.

“He is a good right back. He is doing very well especially on bringing crosses. His confidence levels are high and I think he can only get better,” said Sweswe.

The platinum miners are yet to taste a defeat in their opening six matches having managed five wins and a draw to sit top of the log table with 16 points tied with second placed Ngezi Platinum Stars.

However, Sweswe’s side boasts of a superior goal difference.
